We Are Family

Barack Obama is the presumptive Democratic Party nominee.

Can we come together now?

Our country needs so much. The world needs so much. We have talent, power, courage and generosity of spirit in abundance. We have the capacity to lift each other up, to improve the lives of those who just need a little help to stand on their feet and thrive. People in this country and beyond have looked to us with hope, but of late, we have been preoccupied with the shadows. We were injured, and became afraid and angry. Some capitalized on our fears, leading us further from ourselves. And, we were left open to all manner of evil - things and attitudes that we believed long gone.

Today, it is time to come out of our corners, stand up, look each other in the eye, and recognize the power of good in each of us. We are brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers. We come from everywhere, and we are one family. It is time for a reunion.

Reach out.

We have much to do.

I love the song....
I am a retired Art Teacher and have been teaching here at the farm for almost 7 years. During the summer I have about 12 students and in the winter it goes up to 16 or so. I have taught in every school in Brockport from pre school to the college level. My last 13 years were in the high school. This tops it all as the people really want it.

Hey....Thanks for the comments. I just may have to look into this red hat stuff. Today there were about 10 of them who attended the performance and I loved their presence. Now, I have the summer off from the chorus and Reading Dogs. It will be a nice little break.
Tomorrow morning a lesson with my pony and then the remodeling of a garden around one of the community sculptures we had installed in a village park....maybe fit in mowing a friend's 2 acre lawn (they pay me of course). No rest for the wicked.
